A system launched in February by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) will help track adverse events associated with blood transfusion and give hospitals and public health officials tools they can use to help prevent such events in the future.
The Hemovigilance Module is the newest component of the CDC's National Healthcare Safety Network, a confidential and voluntary online surveillance system that the agency uses to track infections associated with health care. The module was created by the CDC in collaboration with AABB (formerly the American Association of Blood Banks), an organization that represents institutions and professionals involved in blood transfusion and transplantation.
